stops here. we're definitely looking out for you. >>> welcome to "hannity." president obama and his liberal cohorts have been out in full force pushing the white house's official talking points on the many scandals that are swirling around the administration calling them "phony." tonight, we've taken this administration to task. by the way, mr. president, i hope you are paying attention tonight. now for starters, i'm not sure where the white house came up with the erroneous definition of the word phony. that's the absolute last phrase i would use to describe the controversies that are plaguing this presidency. and to help prove our point, we put together a video and the people are not paid actors, they're real patriotic americans who prove that there is nothing remotely phony about these scandals. watch this. so far for most of this year, we've seen an endless parade of distractions, phony scandals, political posturing. >> last night, border patrol agent, brian a. terry was shot and killed in the line of duty. >> my son that night. something bad happened out there that night. and i

on and president obama could say he may have been trayvon martin 35 years ago. a lot of people are saying it is america's weakness, we're showing we're afraid of al qaeda, closing embassies. on the other hand, god forbid another attack happens and we weren't prepared and didn't vacate some people and heard these threats, a lot of us at this table would say we should have closed embassies. we have assets and fast response teams in spain, bahrain, italy, the marine expeditionary unit in the middle east ready to go. this is clearly by the size and scope of it, 21 embassies, 4 consulates, the scope of this tells you there's a credible threat. this is going to be something that they believe in nature, al qaeda and arabian peninsula likely. maybe it wasn't a bad idea to close some of these. >> it does, andrea, seem overbroad. maybe they have reason to because they have enough chatter to know something is going on, not sure, perhaps it is a way to draw out the terrorists, trying to figure out, pinpoint who it is. >> i hope that's it. it is one of two things. one, the threat is credible, it is se
. the obama administration is reconsidering plans for a summit with russian president vladimir putin next month after russia granted a year of temporary asylum to national security agency whistleblower edward snowden. on thursday, snowden left the moscow airport where he had been sheltering for more than a month while the united states sought his return to face espionage charges for revealing nsa spy programs. in a statement released by wikileaks, edward snowden said -- a russian lawyer for snowden said he is set to begin a new life in russia. we will have more on snowden and the latest nsa leaks after headlines with two members of congress were trying to defined the nsa's all collection of phone and data records -- democrat john conyers of michigan and kentucky republican thomas massie. says iraq hasions closed out its deadliest month in more than five years following a wave of sectarian bombings and shootings. in total, the violence killed 1057 iraqis and injured more than 2300 in july. many of the attacks focused on iraq's shiite majority which leads the government. in egypt, supporter

held their 40th vote to roll back president obama's health care law. every single gop lawmaker voted for it. voting to hurt health care and to take it away from millions of americans. >> this was a do nothing congress, and now it has gone to something worse. it's a make matters worse congress. we should not leave until we address the challenges that we face. >> that's right. this makes matters worse, congress. it is celebrating by going on vacation for the entire month of august. and when they get back, some of these republicans may actually try to shut down the government in order to kill obama care. today we also got some shocking news about the republican plan for food stamps. they were already calling for a $20 billion cut, which would kick about five million people off food stamps. now they want to double those cuts to $40 billion. it's stunning. these republicans aren't taking away money from big oil or big banks. they're literally taking food away from the poorest among us, the least fortunate. don't john boehner, eric cantor and these other republicans have any shame at all?
president obama's birthday on sunday and iran is installing a new president on sunday. they don't think it's related to either of those. the information is that it's related to ramadan and that's why the embassies will be shutting down. >> tracie, thank you very much. >>> defying the request from the u.s., russia has granted edward snowden temporary asylum. the self-professed nsa leaker got the proper documents to leave. he is in an undisclosed location this morning. and while it might help the former contractor this morning, jim aceda is joining us. what are the implications for what has happened with the whole snowden scenario? >> reporter: good morning, betty. the snowden situation has strained difficult relations between the united states and russia. the u.s. does see the snowden asylum as a slap in the face really. the question now is how far is the obama administration willing to go to embarrass putin by boycotting the g 20. obama and putin plan to have one-on-one talks in moscow before the g-20. the white house is hinting to cancel that. he spent his first night in freedom as an off
for being with us. good evening, everybody. president obama is repairing for a rare trip to capitol hill. there he will usher senate democrats out of town for the recess. but it is becoming clear that this president needs a vacation that is still 10 days away. president obama headed to an amazon distribution center in chattanooga, tennessee. there he delivered a wide range of speech on jobs, the economy, obamacare, just a little spin on the sequestered in the keystone pipeline. take a listen to this gem today from president obama. >> this same group has kept in place this meat cleaver called the sequester that is just splashing all kinds of important investments in education and research. if public-sector employees were like the last two sessions come in the unemployment would be 6.5% instead of 7.5%. our economy would be much better off. we are now as president obama using two hypotheticals, slamming the sequester and the incipient cause of all of our unemployment problems. he did not mention that that is the very same sequestered in his white house proposed. the same sequester that he
des plated. . >> well, despite what president obama has said, al qaeda is not decimated. it's back, if it ever went away and strong enough that the state department is issuing a travel ban and closing all u.s. embassies in the muslim world because of a real and credible terror threat. now, 162,000 jobs added in july here in the usa. the soft, disappointing number with part-timers beating full-timers confirms what we already know about the economy. it's still only 2%, but stocks liked it. we may be talking about a downsized mini goldilocks. my full take on the jobs report and the market and what it means for the fed later on in the show. and the war of words between chris christie and rand paul is heating up. is the future of the republican party at stake here? our free market friday panel will have all those stories and much more coming up in "the kudlow report" beginning right now. >>> good evening, everyone. welcome back to "ed kudlow report." i'm larry kudlow. the u.s. is on high alert over the threat of an al qaeda terror attack in the northeast or north africa starting this we

improved, the obama white house struggles to maintain order domestically and yes, even abroad. russia today allowed america's most wanted man, and as a liquor edwards snowden to leave the moscow airport after granting him a one-year temrary asylum. the move that embarrassing blow to the obama administration was as -- which has charged him with espionage. today's signal that it could hurt relations with moscow. >> we are extremely disappointed that the russian government would ke this step despite our very clearnd lawful requests inublic and pvate t have mr. snowden expelled to the united states to face the ges agnst him. this move by the russian government underminethe longstanding record of law enforcement cooperation. lou: the white house says it is now aluating whether to proceed with a planned summit in scow scheduled for next month. on capitol hill silence from those who have called snowdon a hero. there was strong bipartisan combination. here is senator chuck schumer. >> russia has stabbed in the back, and each day that snowden is allowed to roam free is another tst of the nice. lou:

evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. remember what president obama said about the republicans about how their endless symbolic votes to kill obama care are now part of american law, by the way, don't constitute an economic plan? well, they didn't get the word. before the congress left for a five-week vacation today, they had one last piece of business to attend to. it wasn't creating jobs. it was another vote to kill obama care. if you're scoring this at home, it's the 40th time the republican-led house voted to of repeal is, defund or cripple the law. it is government by tantrum meaningless. meaningless measures, meaningless roll calls, meaningless speeches as they say down in texas, it's all hat and no cattle. republicans are united against obama care when it comes to votes like this one, but a warring faction of tea party republicans led by ted cruz of texas are making it very real threat to shut down the u.s. government if the law is not killed. apparently the strategy is being lambasted as silly, dumb, unachievable and political suicide. and the
the obama administration to issue a worldwide travel alert. here is senior white house foreign affairs correspondent wendell goler . >> reporter: the scope of the shut down is unprecedented. 21 embassies and consulates in the middle east, north africa, south central asia. never has a security concern prompted action of that magnitude. lawmakers briefed on the threat say the specifics are classified and won't reveal much. >> it is al qaeda linked and based upon our experience in the past, we know that when information surfaces that shows that our personnel are at risk, we should act on that information. >> reporter: last year's attack on the benghazi consulate that claimed the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three others seems to be the reason for the latest intelligence. most of the u.s. installations in the region will be closed on what is often the busiest day in the muslim world. texas republican congress wonders if the publicity is counter productive. >> if we're going to secure our embassies, maybe that's something we ought to just do and not necessarily hold a press confere
that he believes president obama has a real time line for ending the striem. remarks the state department walked back. u.s. drone strikes killed 8 suspected militants in pakistan. >>> we know it's been a while since we've seen edward snowden. we've gotten a picture of edward snowden. he's a legal resident of russia. he's been granted temporary asylum by moscow. that will allow him to remain in that country for at least a year. yesterday snowden was seen leaving the moscow airport where he was stranded for more than a month. the website wikileaks says he remains with legal advisor sarah harrison and is currently in a secure, confidential location. the u.s. is demanding that snowden be returned home for leaking classified documents although now that seems highly unlikely. >> mr. snowden is not a whistle-blower, he is accused of leaking classified information. this move by the russian government long-standing record of law enforcement cooperation, cooperation that has recently been on the upswing since the boston marathon bombing. we see this as an unfortunate development and we are extremel
's fingerprints all over them. and that includes the fight over defunding obama care. cruz, along with mike lee, marco rubio and others are all urging their senate colleagues to sign a pledge vowing to vote no on any spending bill that spends even a penny of the president's health care law. the government shutdown is their ultimate bargaining chip. a focal collision of conservative groups including the tea party patriots and citizens united took to the capitol hill today as part of that fight against the president's health care law. their argument to republicans -- you fund it, you own it. well, like flies to honey, cruz and tea party republicans were there to greet them, of course. here they are. >> there's no battle more important than this opportunity right now to finally defund obama care. obama care is the biggest job care in this country. it is hurting the economy. >> it hangs over our economy like a cloud of uncertainty and people don't know what tomorrow is going to bring. >> we're standing for the people. i hope the president understands that and eventually if we stand strongly enough,
scripted anti-obama care speeches. >> take senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. on the issue of obama care, he says -- >> this law is a disaster and i want you to know we're not backing down from this fight. >> but when he has the chance to defund obama care, some say he is chickening out. senator mcconnell, conservatives don't need a chicken when it comes to obama care. leaders lead. but if you fund it, you own it. >> looks like to keep from being embarrassed in a primary, mitch mcconnell will be forced as hard to the right as possible. and if he goes far enough, he opens up space for alison lundergan zbrgrimes to run as t fresh voice and common sense centrist that kentuckians need. joining me now, howard fineman, nbc news political analyst and editorial director of the "huffington post" media group. once a reporter in the great state of kentucky. i know why i don't like mitch mcconnell. of course i'm not his target audience. why is he so unpopular in kentucky? >> well, it's really kind of amazing. he was elected -- he's been elected five times, and yet his popularity numbers are hor
's release has u.s. officials weighing whether to cancel president obama's planned summit with putin next month. >> we will obviously be in contact with russian authorities, expressing our extreme disappointment in this decision and making the case clearly that there is absolute legal justification for mr. snowden to be returned to the united states where he is under indictment on three charges felony charges. >> brown: meanwhile, the president met privately with a bipartisan group of house and senate lawmakers to address concerns about the n.s.a.'s surveillance programs. back in russia, snowden now has a grant of asylum for at least a year. that can be extended indefinitely, and he even has the right to seek russian citizenship. a short time ago i spoke to paul sonne of the "wall street journal" in moscow. paul, thanks for joining us. how much of a surprise was this in moscow? >> i wasn't a particular surprise. there was a lot of writing on the wall here that the kremlin was going to make this decision and the real question is why was the kremlin predisposed to granting edward snowden a
i do come here in the spirit of partnership to identify those reforms. i note that president obama has already signed seven of the so-called partisan and meaningless bills which he on a regular basis despices in his speeches. he's responded to the employer community by delaying the employer mandate. i wish he would also extend mandate relief to rank and file americans and their families by also delaying the individual mandate. but i'm going to ask you a few pointed questions here. do you think the administration could support as another possible measure repealing the definition of full time of 30 hours which it's never been popularly understood to be and restoring the traditional 40 hour definition as it applies to this act? >> i'll start by saying i'm not the right government official to answer that question. i would defer to treasury on those type of policy calls. >> that's not mine either i'm afraid. >> the tax code, of course, is your forat the so i'll ask you this. can you point to any places where full-time is defined as being 30 hours a week? >> i will look into that and get
granted him an asylum for just one year. that means he can live and work there. meanwhile, president obama, because more and more members of congress are concerned over the extent of nsa's spying on us, as we vealed by edward snowden, president obama convened a meeting of republicans to discuss how we can get the proper balance between national security and our right of privacy. and you can look for some legislation which will restrict nsa's spying. we'll tell you all about it right here on current tv. iq will go way up.

cain very interestingly are traveling to egypt at the request of president obama. they've often gone off on their own and they are the most experienced foreign policy hands on republican side there but the fact that they are traveling really as enjoy vois for the white hou white house is very, very significant. before we close this down, what are the next steps? i'm told routine steps will be to try to either confirm or deny, knock down this threat, check with foreign intelligence services, and also beef up security either the marine guards or local security, national, foreign nationals at these posts, to the extent that they could then keep them open. but we don't have confirmation yet of this threat from our intelligence allies. >> i guess that's the best way to put it, yes. and in terms of the number one goal for the u.s. intelligence agencies, it is to try to see what more specificity they can get, can they learn more. they'll go back now. the usual procedure is to go back now and look at the take of intelligence, the electronic intelligence that they've gathered to see if they see a
of president obama. i'm curious about the comments made by secretary kerry and the reaction to people there regarding what we just played. >> reporter: well, the muslim brotherhood and supporters of the ousted president were very critical of those comments. they called it rhetoric and said the united states would not accept the u.s. pentagon to overthrow a democratically elected leader. they said the u.s.s is now complicit in the military coup against egypt. it really boils down to which side of the debate you ask. on the other hand, supporters of the military action here say that it is about time the united states gets on the side of democracy in egypt and not support islamic fundamentalists as they describe the muslim brotherhood. it really depends on who you ask. i can assure you, the united states is always on the losing side when you ask people here. both sides very displeased with the way the u.s. has positioned itself. >> all right. ayman mohyeldin live for us in cairo. thank you, ayman. >>> and a live look now at the markets reacting to today's jobs report. the unemployment ra

asylum as a slap in the face. the question is just how is the obama administration willing -- how far is it willing to go to hit back and embarrass president vladimir putin? now boycotting a major event like the g-20, which takes place in early september still seems unlikely to observers. however, obama and putin plan to have talks in moscow just before the g-20 meeting and the white house is already hinting it may cancel that meeting in protest. meanwhile, the american fugitive spent his first night in freedom as an official refugee in russia after almost six weeks being stranded in that moscow airport. his lawyer has said that he's staying in the home of an american ex-pat family here. that he's looking forward to learning russian and ghaith job to support himself. not, get this in information technology, but he's more interested in becoming a human rights activist. richard, back to you. >> jim maceda, thank you. >>> negotiations between alex rodriguez and major league baseball are reportedly stalled. the yankees slugger still wants to cash in on some of the remaining $100 million o

that was basically a rip-off of facebook. over the past weeks, we've seen the obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law. that is of course, the standard hysterical overstatement that is part of every edward snowden statement. snowden continued. but in the end, the law is winning. i thank the russian federation for granting me asylum in accordance with its laws and obligations. the kremlin's spokesperson is actually trying to get away with the lie that the decision to grant asylum had been made by immigration officials following the law. not but russian president vladimir putin. the white house today said it is extremely disappointed with the russian's decision, and is "evaluating the utility" of president obama's september trip to moscow for a bilateral summit. >> he has been charged with three felony counts. and he should be returned to the united states as soon as possible where he will be accorded due process and protections. this move by the russian government undermines a long standing form of cooperation, a cooperation that has recently been on the upswing since

the mandate. >> i don't read it that way. rfel and mr. -- the obama administration is saying if you work more than 30 hours a week -- she would have to provide health care or else get it through subsidy in the exchange. that is not through any longer through 2014, the employer will not have to offer coverage to the individual would have to go through the exchange and 2014 to get coverage. many have already seen their businesses ares tried to comply with the 30 hour role. care is not obama ready and it is the american people who bear the burden of you not being ready. for employers and their employees? either one of you. >> i would just say, first of thatthat the requirement employers provide coverage under the affordable care act when it goes into effect only applies to larger employers. which provide coverage to their workers today. so the impact of that provision is actually quite small. -- smallerloyees employers are not subject before and they will not be next year. there is a lot of misunderstanding about what this provision is and who it impacts. >> i think i would stop there. i said ea
in the period from about 2004 to 2009. when the obama administration came in, it realized it had a big problem with al qaeda in yemen. we saw some improvements in terms of counterterrorism cooperation in the late 2009, 2011 period. then they had their hour of spring and president -- came into power and replaced -- and he's been a much more aggressive partner. the fact is aqap remains the most capable al qaeda affiliate out there and the only one that i would say really has the desire and the capability to launch attacks outside of its own country. >> president obama met yet the president of yemen. what could be so broad about this threat that the u.s. would close 21 em babassies and con s lats in the region? >> the breadth of that action probably reflects some uncertainty about what's threatened and the actual gee graphical focus of it. we're coming up on april 7th. it's the 15th anniversary of the east africa bombings in 1998 when al qaeda operatives targeted our embassies. that was a catalytic moment. it was a moment when al qaeda established its hallmark of multiple simultaneous attacks. i
if we chose to be. mr. obama has targeted a lot of places where regulation needs to be improved but he has done it in very expensive ways and ways that create other distortions. the large banks, for example, have consolidated and monopolized markets in smaller cities and so forth and businesses aren't getting the loans they need. i could go on but that is the general theme. >> peter didn't mention these, jim, but also some upcoming debates in washington that get a lot of attention. the debt ceiling and sequester. how do they fit in? >> it would be a disaster to let the country default on its debts right now. i think almost all economists agree on that and not what this economy could handle right now. it also would be a better thing if we did not have as much physical drag going on. clearly we are losing some employment, although not as much as initially feared because of government cutbacks and something the fed chairman ben bernanke has said a lot that the fiscal consolidations of the federal government right now are holding back the economy a little bit. >> all right. jim tankersley
on. -- cut jay, he says everything but basic services. jimmy says, if obama cared, he would be a better president. he don't, so here we go again. jeff says -- nothing new from this pathetic congress. theiams comments -- let government shutdown, maybe they will be able to screw us, spy on us, or cover their scandals up. who am i kidding, they will find a way to do that anyway. another says -- eliminate republicans in the house, eliminate the problem. and tom says -- they should have their pay suspended for not doing their job. oregon on our, democrat line. what do you think about the federal budget and federal budget process as it stands? i think they are just playing games with us because they try to do this once before. my question is, as a senior citizen, i get my social security from my bank. if that money does not know when, and i live in housing, which is also government, how might going to pay my rent? as far as people that have automatic payments that come out of their accounts, those are going to go unpaid, and there will be fees from the banks. but we will stack up
